Slodowy slices for two-block nilpotents

My question is about an isomorphism between two varieties of the form discussed in this thread; it is also related to an earlier question of mine. Let $z_n$ be the standard nilpotent of type $(n,n)$. ...

Does the preimage of the Slodowy slice in $T^*G/P$ have a name?

Let $G$ be your favorite simple complex Lie group, and $P\subset G$ your favorite parabolic subgroup. We can identify $T^*G/P$ with the space of pairs $$\{(gP,x)\in G/P\times \mathfrak g | x\perp ...
